Sense and Sensibility - Como Shambhala Estate
Since the 16th century the luxurious tropical paradise of Bali has enchanted travellers, explorers and adventurers with its sensuous charm, and as soon as you take in the natural beauty of the Como Shambala Estate, with its powerful allure and unique ‘home from home’ atmosphere, you’ll realise you’ve come to the ideal place - it is the perfect setting for wellness and personal change.
Operated by the international Como Group, Bali’s Shambhala Estate ticks all the boxes of a luxury hotel - stunning location, delightful staff, and delicious cuisine, as well as first class facilities and accommodation - but this sanctuary offers so much more than a holiday at a quality hotel. Rather than being a ‘resort’, the Estate provides guests with an extraordinary ‘retreat’ experience.
On arrival, a personal assistant greets you and remains on hand throughout your stay. Firstly, you’ll be whisked off to your own private oasis, where check-in is completed in the comfort of your own room. There are 30 residences or suites, five Retreat Villas and four Private Villas to choose from, and for larger groups or families, there are villas featuring up to three bedrooms with assorted living spaces, exclusive pools, sunken Victorian baths, and traditional Balinese open-air bathrooms. Meanwhile, the charming rustic 80sqm Garden Villa features its own carp-pond and a decked terrace with daybed and garden furniture. [To be continued...]

There are a plethora of residences, suites and villas to choose from, to suit solo travellers, couples and large groups alike.

This is followed by a private consultation to arrange your dietary, wellness and activity preferences, including classes, activities, treatments and even a personalised menu if necessary.
Set at the top of a hill with a breathtakingly lush backdrop, the Como Shambhala Estate is surrounded by trails, waterfalls, streams and stepping stones, among paths that lead you down towards the Ayung River. The soporific sound of the different bodies of water inherently promotes relaxation, and once the sun goes down, you’ll instead start to hear an all-enveloping symphony of chirps, clicks and croaks from the surrounding jungle, which highlight Bali’s rich biodiversity.
